IntroductionHumans are different from animals mainly because of their ability to think. The thinking process andactions taken by individuals create the difference in the lives of two humans. An unsuccessful personclaims the problems in his life as the main culprit, while a successful person would use same problems toget success and happiness in life. We see successful human beings in offices, society and markets. Theyare considered successful because of their achievements, money they possess, power they wield orconfidence they radiate. Most people want to be like them and wish for their luck, without understandingthe real difference between them and others.The definition of success is different for every individual, some consider peace of mind as success forothers money is important, some find more time with family as bliss while others want to travel. Asuccessful life doesn’t mean the life with money and power but a satisfactory, happy and positive life. Aperson can be unsuccessful even after having all amenities of life and being surrounded by yes men.Researchers have done extensive analysis to find the difference between successful and unsuccessfulpersons. Looking at all the aspects, the only difference which could be found is the perception ofhappenings in life. For an unsuccessful person life is full of negativities and problems. Every event isperceived in the most negative form, which put pressure on life and body. They get stress and are unableto think straight about the problem. Even for simple problems they are not able to find solutions and takeactions. Even when opportunities arrive they are not able to get the benefits of them as they are too busywith their problems.An unsuccessful person would look at all negative aspects of events in life while a successful personwould look at the same events in completely different way, he would see all positives in it, and fewpeople may even find opportunities in it. For a successful person all happenings in life are events. Allfacts of the event are analyzed and understood, which are then looked in positive and empowering ways.Even the extreme negative cases are viewed positively to get least affected by them, instead learn fromthose events. This habit of successful and happy people makes them optimistic in life, which allows themto take the maximum advantage of the situation to get success.This book looks at some events of life and tries to view them in optimistic ways. I interacted with a largenumber of successful people to look for their secrets. In most of the cases I found the similar ways of
perceiving the events of their life. These events are neither good nor bad; they are just events, open to anempowering or a negative perception.

Our mind tends to look at most of the happenings of life in passiveways. We need to train our mind with right statements and questions to feel positive and in control of thesituation. This book covers a number of such events followed by empowering statements and questions tofocus on the positive side of each event.
